If you haven't come across these ideas before - it could be quite a revelation. Having read widely around mindfulness I didn't find anything which was 'new' for me. But book is well-written, chapters are short and easy to read. The idea of following suggestions in one chapter for one week is an excellent idea for self-helpers wanting to start putting the ideas into practice.

You can change your brain by how you use it. In this lovely book the author has distilled a mixture of neuroscience, psychology and mindfulness into 52 simple yet powerful daily mental practices. You can work through the book focusing on one topic a week, or just pick one that you fancy - no rules here. The idea is to do something from the book each day as it is daily practice that brings development and change.
Each short and easy to read chapter starts with a title like 'Be Mindful', 'Aspire without attachment', or 'Respond, don't react', then has some very pertinent background information, which really helps with the following section on how to do it in a short daily practice. The book's simplicity and kindliness make it very accessible and therefore powerful in bringing about helpful change. I suggest keeping it to hand so that you see it and dip in often [daily].

Fascinating insight from a man who is a scientist and at this same time, spiritual. Personally, I am working my way through the chapters a week at a time, allowing the information time to absorb. Particularly interesting was the revelation that our brains are programmed to be like Velcro for negative experiences yet like Teflon for positive ones. I intend to use this book to defy Teflon!

I have only just started to read this book, after a good friend suggested it might be of help to me. Passages I have read so far are very insightful and one paragraph about dwelling on negative thoughts was so telling, I acted on it immediately. Those few words alone were worth buying the book. Sometimes simple truths are not self-evident. The proliferation of self-help books is often scoffed at, but this one might actually HELP you!

simple useful and easy to follow advice that has me wondering why until I read some of this book I had not come up with the same idea to put into practice which is why its simplicity is so brilliant
